How do I refund PayPal orders from Celery?


To refund PayPal orders from the Celery dashboard, you must grant permissions to Celery.


Please note the following limitations of PayPal:

  • Any refund must be completed within 60 days of payment. Otherwise, seller will have to send money back to the buyer and potentially pay additional PayPal fees.
  • PayPal fixed fees are not refundable. Variable fees are. Learn more.
